Often times, people tell me how lucky I am that I get to interview movie stars as part of my job as a film critic. Usually I’m just interviewing them over the phone, but it is fun when they do the press junket and you get 15 minutes with them.
One writer talked about being invited to George Clooney’s house to interview him, and loving the autographed photos he had on the…Continue
